Some of our collective were lucky enough to go to Leipzig, Germany this month, a historical city twinned with Birmingham. Working with young people from all over Europe (France, Italy, Germany, Sweden, Ukraine, Russia, Poland to name but a few) we discussed ways for young people to learn more about Europe’s past, exploring how to carve out their way as part of Europe and what their collective future might be like. The visit formed part of an International Summer Camp led by Karolina Iwa to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the Battle of Nations. It was a totally amazing experience full of new friends, new ideas and new ways of working. We will miss our Leipzig family!
